Ok? And I keep turtles among other animals for a living. I'm really not sure what you're trying to get at. I never said the dog couldn't go outside. I was correcting your post when you implied that only turtles carry salmonella and that all other poop is safe to eat. All feces carries bacteria (Salmonella among others), parasites and disease. Don't let it get to ANY kind of feces be it turtle poop, another dogs poop, cat poop, ect. If the puppy can't control it's self and you can't pick up the poop, then keep the dog on a leash.
I know plenty about the 'tasty' temptations of poop, I live on a farm where there are dozens of varieties on the "snack bar". Not to mention we live in the woods where coyotes, deer, fox, rabbits, squirrels, ect roam. That doesn't mean I'm going to let my dog eat one variety over the other, not that I'd allow it at all. My dogs get corrected from the get go for attempting that, they learn to leave it alone and with proper training (ie. using a leash and reinforcing the leave it command) this puppy can learn too.
